Include him in your pregnancy. Let him know that his little brother/sister is growing in your tummy. When I had my 2nd my 1st was 2.5 as well. We found out what we were having and named our 2nd while I was still pregnant. My oldest would kiss us all goodnight and also my belly.

If you make any big changes (like moving into a big bed) then make sure you don't tell him that he has to make room for the baby. He won't like the change if that's the reason and will associate him having to give up things just for the baby.
